Hitachi Astemo Miyagi No.4 Plant
Tokyo, May 30, 2022 – Hitachi Astemo, Ltd. (President & CEO: Brice Koch) today announced the start of mass production of electric vehicle inverters at its Miyagi No.4 Plant, located in Murata, Miyagi Prefecture, to meet the increasing demand for electrification products.
There is increasing demand for electric vehicles globally due to the eminent role they play in achieving carbon neutral and carbon emissions reduction targets set by governments. To meet this increasing demand, Hitachi Astemo has expanded its production capabilities and product line-up of core components for electric vehicles, such as motors and inverters, through the establishment of manufacturing subsidiaries and the four company integration which was completed in January 2021. To date, Hitachi Astemo had manufactured electric vehicle motors and inverters, a core component that controls the operation of the power generator, at its plant in Kakuda, Miyagi Prefecture. However, to further expand production capabilities, Hitachi Astemo has decided to commence mass production of these products at its Miyagi No.4 Plant in Murata, Miyagi Prefecture, which was newly built in March 2021.
Hitachi Astemo is committed to providing advanced mobility solutions that contribute to improving safety and comfort, and environmental conservation. By doing so, we contribute to creating a more sustainable society and value for our OEM customers.
